In the Upper School, one grade-level dean is assigned to each grade and has formal responsibility for student supervision. They are essential “point persons” for contact with parents and students in their grade. Responsibilities of the grade deans include but are not limited to the following:

  1. Monitor and address issues of student behavior;
  2. Organize and implement grade-specific activities and events;
  3. Assist with the design and implementation of leadership programs, service programs, and co-curricular activities;
  4. Help coordinate student orientation programs; and
  5. Maintain regular communication with students and parents.
